new brooches

i have been scavenging bits of antique jewelry at garage sales, estate sales and flea markets all summer.
Photobucket
in some cases i took the original brooch apart, others were already missing parts.

i altered them by adding my glass beads, freshwater pearls and gems.

these are all headed to 'artist's row' at the public market next sunday (september 21st).

alas, i am not really ready to sell them, they are so newly made that we are still on our honeymoon.

They are fantastic! Unusual and lovely!

I am the same about some of my creations, I have to keep them for awhile before letting go of them, or even putting them out into the world.

The punctured thumb is really scary, isn't it.
